Born out of the folk-infested foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Charlottesville Virginia, Lolita is a Hard Rock band that defies the limits of genre with their powerful hooks and soulful melodies. It might surprise you how polished Lolita sounds for having such a new and unique style, but the truth is that this band is a living testament to the importance of long-term collaboration and group cohesion.
Lolita was first conceptualized by frontman Will Nealy (The Defectives, Sinclairity) and bassist Jeff White (The Defectives, From Here on Blue) nearly a decade ago when the two friends united over a shared passion for bringing a new style of music to the monotony of Charlottesville’s traditional sound. They envisioned a rock band that respected the pioneers of the genre while simultaneously presenting an entirely new manifestation of musical movement. Their vision finally became a reality when Michael Domingue joined the band bringing along his eclectic and hard-hitting drumming style.
The trio quickly built up an extensive musical repertoire and released their debut EP “Tell The Weather” Fans of the musicians’ earlier groups were quick to embrace their newest offerings. Lolita started to build up an extensive fanbase both locally and internationally with airplay in the UK and US.
Emboldened by the positive responses to their musical offering, Lolita decided to test their luck in a larger market. So with heavy hearts, the guys packed up their gear and left Virginia for Brooklyn. Over the past couple of years Lolita has been steadily building a following on the East Coast and California. In 2017, the band welcomed the addition of guitarist Rob Sewall, taking the bands live sound to a whole new level. Although it’s been a long time since any of the band has lived in Virginia, they haven’t forgotten where they came from. Despite their dedication to creating something entirely new and different, their hometown roots become magnificently evident through their surprisingly poignant and poetic lyricism which never ceases to wow those who attend their live performances.
Lolita’s exceptionally engaging live performances are not the only way to check out the band. Now you can listen to Lolita anywhere, at any time by picking up their new EP “Counting Chemtrails”, available on Spotify, Itunes, and Amazon. Check back soon for music release and tour updates.
